Honey Bee Hive House

Location: Jerusalem, Israel

Built in the 1970s, this housing structure has a confusing facade that seems to be a jumble of some recognizable features of a traditional home, while also resembling a bee hive. The construction was part of the National Ministry of Housing's efforts to create and promote unconventional architecture throughout Jerusalem, and bees should definitely be credited for the design. Perhaps there are a few things we can learn from the insects that have become known for the intricate but simple construction of their homes.
